“Like no other pickup, the X-Class manages being both tough and stylish, and is thus hot and cool at the same time. With its puristic and yet extremely emotional design, the X-Class is following a radically new approach for pickups”, says Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG. With its progressive design, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class manages the fine balance between being both robust and stylish. As such, it brings a wind of change to the mid-size pickup segment, opening it up to new customer groups. The X-Class embodies the new and enhanced Mercedes-Benz design philosophy of Sensual Purity. Its purist design emphasises the surfaces and features stripped-down, extremely precise design elements to create an emotive, elongated silhouette packed with dynamic energy – and almost unlimited functionality.
